    To me, this is one of the most brilliant inventions of all time. At first thought Bubble Wrap might not seem like it has any Kitsch a aspects to it but it was invented because someone had the vision to streamline packing material and went for making something completely unique and individual. Often times this leads to masterful Kitsch. Of course, Bubble Wrap has wrapped itself around many a kitsch object being shipped around the world, all too frequently to my house.

    Thank you also aKitschionado Denny for submitting Bubble Wrap to the Museum on the occasion of the former’s 50th.
